Featuring the Social Impact Pitch

The 2020 VE Social Impact Pitch is a competition that inspires VE students to propose solutions to pressing social and environmental issues. The first-place team—chosen by the audience—will receive $10,000 to advance their concept while the second- and third-place team members will receive laptop computers. Prizes are supported by BNP Paribas, whose mission supports igniting social innovation for the common good, and VE board member Jay Novik.
